Ryder Lake is an historic farming community on the outskirts of Chilliwack nestled in a valley surrounded by Elk Mountain, Mount McGuire and Mt Thom.
The Ryder Lake Institutes Hall is the focal point of the community and the venue for most of our community events. These include craft fairs, potluck dinners, a Country Fair and Dew Worm races, and children's activities such as Breakfast with Santa. The Hall is maintained solely through fund raising and rentals, and the help of volunteers.
